Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming

Check out these beautiful drawings.

What you are seeing here are four cards I coloured and then put together today.
I have used three new panels from Emily Midgett's release this month.

If you follow me here or on Instagram you would have seen other cards I have done
here and there using releases from Emily.

The new panels for this month are, obviously, Christmas florals, named “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming.”She wanted to provide a variety of holiday florals instead of the more traditional poinsettia, so  created four unique floral bouquets featuring some of her most favourite holiday flowers, all combined with a smattering of wintry foliage and plenty of berries!

 In addition to the black and white panels that she has been releasing, Emily is now offering a no-line colouring option, as well!  So you can get panels that are Copic friendly, line or noline look, and also on watercolour paper.

To get all the details you need please go to Emily's blog for information on how long these will be available for you to purchase. If your in Australia it is a couple of dollars extra for postage.

These do not remain available over a long period of time so you need to move on it if you are interested. Emily is also making her previous prints available again just this time, again go to her blog to read all information and to see previous panels.

 Now to share the cards one at a time.

I ran out of time to colour all the new panels as I coloured one panel twice, once I saw that it was a flower that came in many colours and I couldn't resist doing it in pink after I had coloured one in red.

This first flower is a Amaryllis and I coloured it in red for this card. The berries are a slightly darker mix.
I added a silver glitter paper background and heat embossed the sentiment twice but it is a bit hard to see here.

Colours for the main flower R05 R24 & R46
Berries R29 R39 & R59
Leaves YG67 G28 & G29

Same flowers but this time I decided to do in pinks and leave the pale strip in the centre
of each bloom.
I added this one to a pale green cardbase and the sentiment is silver heat embossed on vellum.

Flower RV10 RV02 RV13 RV14 and minimal RV09 on ends of petals.
YG01 in centre.
Berries R29 R39 & R59
Leaves YG67 G28 & G29 

These flowers are Anemones. Instead of red I decided to colour in purple as they also come in purple. The berries same red as before but foliage is make believe as I wanted to have purple and teal look.

Flowers V01 V17 V09
Berries  R29 R39 & R59
Leaves BG78 BG09 BG57
Sentiment strip from 'Unique Stamps'

This next colouring is a beautiful magnolia, looks more sepia than white but what can I say.
Working on this. Added to a gold thick glitter craft paper and the sentiment is from Stamplorations 'Seasons Greetings'

Flower W5 E43 E41 
yellow centre Y6 Y18 Y98
Leaves YG67 G28 G29
Berries R14 R29 R39

Now make sure you go check out Emily's website and see her colouring of these panels and the one I didn't have time to colour, which is the Poinsettia image.

These panels are great for Christmas but also just as good in other colours for cards for other occassions.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope to see you again soon.
